Role: Product concept, creative direction, and project management.
This interactive preschool app helped drive brand awareness of the new preschool line extension for Hot Dots education cards. Our goal was to connect the printed card to the then-emerging preschool app market.
Because young children were increasingly spending more time interacting with digital devices, it was important for us to bridge this divide. Our core product was a box of printed cards and we wanted to remain relevant in the eyes of the modern parent.
Traditional printed Hot Dots cards, used with an itneractive pen, became touch-sensitive activities on the iPhone. Thc child's fingertip became the stylus.

The Learn to Solder Pins are simple soldering activity kits that teach basic soldering skills, awarding the consumer with a working, blinking, wearable pin once complete. John Viet-Triet Nguyen illustrated these based on sketches for our launch at Maker Faire Bay Area in 2014. It was such a treat to see kids and adults alike wearing their proud badges of accomplishment!
